Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Enough of this

Submitted by follower of isa (United States), Feb 3, 2006 at 21:24

For those expounding the "peaceful" nature of Islam do not know their history very well, or have read sanitized accounts of the spread of Islam. In the places outside of Medina, Muhammad and his followers were rejected until they began to "spread" their "religion" by the sword, or by making those in the lands conquered by Muhammad and his minions. Their reasoning being someone converted through coercive means is not a true follower, but a dead person will not cause trouble. There is no love in Islam, only fear and rote, mechanical recitation of a farcical text that says nothing. Teachers of hate wake up, the world has no place for you.
